Judge mulls frivolousness of God lawsuit
A Nebraska lawmaker says his lawsuit against God is perfectly valid
until a judge says otherwise.
State Sen. Ernie Chambers, D-Omaha, sued the Almighty for making
terrorist threats against mankind in the form of floods, earthquakes,
plagues and other calamities and demand he cease and desist immediately,
KETV-TV in Omaha said Wednesday.
Chambers was in court Tuesday to press his case but readily admitted it
was a publicity stunt to remind his colleagues that it isn't up to
politicians to limit citizens' constitutional access to the judicial
system by bans on so-called frivolous lawsuits.
KETV said Chambers has taken a stand against limits on lawsuits in the
past and was quoted last year saying, "Anybody can file a lawsuit
against anybody -- even God."
The judge assigned to the case took the matter under advisement.
Chambers told KETV he wasn't expecting a quick ruling.
